Sorry to see Sen. Snow lose in this way

Written by 

To the Editor:

Sen. Snow, I am so sorry that people voted based on advertisements rather than on a candidate’s positions. I was appalled to learn of the very misleading mailing saying that you “wanted to give convicted rapists a second chance” right before the election. I was very glad that Scott McLeod of The Smoky Mountain News clearly explained the truth about your position.

I initially looked at such mailings early in the campaign, but when I realized that 90 percent of them were just “hate rhetoric,” I recycled the rest without looking at any of them. Obviously others did read them and were swayed by such rhetoric.

I thank you for your service and wish you the best. Perhaps we’ll see you back.
